that the outlook for the u.s. economy is still quite unclear and that would dovetail nicely with what are likely to be downward revisions to the fed's forecast for the economy. if you look at the march forecasts, they were still forecasting 2013 gdp at 2.5%. and while i don't think they will go down to the sort of level that the imf was forecasting at 1.9 last friday, down grading that forecast of gdp, downgrading their inflation forecasts to levels which they previously described as sub optimal should offer markets some reassurance that as much as bernanke will stress tapering probably is going to happen, it's a matter of when. and he won't pre-judge his options. it's not something which means immediately that interest rates are going to rise. one of the things that markets seem to have to gotten, that when the fed outlined its qe exit plan in 2011, it did actually say the first thing it would do was not raise interest rates but stop rolling off or reinvesting maturing debt. >> the other thing of course is they won't be buying any fresh stuff even when they stop. and tapering doesn't mean they

for immigration reform. it debunks the idea that immigration reform is anything other than a boon to our economy and robs the bill's opponents of one of their last remaining arguments. >> realistically, congressman, do you think the cbo report will convince any of your republican colleagues to vote for this? >> i hope those that have been harping on the idea and mimicking the heritage report that said it was going to cost trillions of dollars to the american taxpayer, this debunks it, as the senator said. i would hope that those that have harped the loudest about the cost and about the expense to the american taxpayer will now realize that their argument has no standing. it is baseless, and it's not true. and in that sense, hopefully that will tone down the rhetoric and we can have an opportunity to have a rational, adult conversation, at least in the house of representatives, where we need to go with this bill. which is the real jeopardy for comprehensive reform is in the house of representative. >> let's talk about that because and you other members of the congressional caucus will meet with s
